Disney Infinity 3.0 has a Toy Box Hub. The Hub itself consists of different lands with their own theme. Each land within the Toy Box Hub is inspired by a Disney setting. Main Street, a Toy Box zone mentioned in the new Disney Infinity 3.0 trailer, is themed to match the Main Street of Disney World and Disney Land. Avalanche wants users to play in each land connected to the Toy Box Hub to get a feel for what the game the game’s activities are like. Avalanche has divided activities into different styles of play. For example, racing is a big focus this year. Buildings in the different lands have interiors and there’s combat for taking on enemies too.
